Webster's paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Indonesian thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of A Connecticut Yankee by Mark Twain was edited for three audiences. The first includes Indonesian-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Indonesian speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Indonesian in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement (AP) or similar examinations. By using the Webster's Indonesian Thesaurus Edition when assigned for an English course, the reader can enrich their vocabulary in anticipation of an examination in Indonesian or English.

From the Publisher:

**Performed by 2001 Grammy-nominated Carl Reiner, nominated for his spoken work performance of Mark Twain's Letters from Earth. **

From the Inside Flap:

Hank Morgan awakens one morning to find he has been transported from nineteenth-century New England to sixth-century England and the reign of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Morgan brings to King Arthur's utopian court the ingenuity of the future, resulting in a culture clash that is at once satiric, anarchic, and darkly comic.
Critically deemed one of Twain's finest and most caustic works, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is both a delightfully entertaining story and a disturbing analysis of the efficacy of government, the benefits of progress, and the dissolution of social mores. It remains as powerful a work of fiction today as it was upon its first publication in 1889.
